The number of people working in the wind industry in Europe, the Americas, and Asia is expected to at least double by 2020. Workforce development is one of the major barriers to achieving these projections.
To help meet the need for qualified wind professionals, DNV GL - Energy provides web-based and in-person training courses and seminars in wind energy. The course content is tailored specifically to the client needs, incorporating subjects ranging across the entire life-cycle of a wind project.
Courses vary in depth from introductory to advanced and vary in length from hours to days. Our courses are designed to be interactive and hands on. We can also provide expert analysis of the competencies that are needed, and will design the most effective course to meet these needs.
